I found this review by Ali about Sarah’s book. It’s not necessarily for everyone, but I think if you’re a parent of a child who has been through trauma, whether you’ve adopted them as Suzy has, or your biological child … Read More
OK the headline is a bit of a misnomer, it’s more like 10 little mini-reviews. And, I don’t know if these will necessarily change your life, because that’s a pretty steep claim to make about a book.

21 Best Mental Health Books of All Time
21 Important Books That Address Mental Health Topics
I’ve read a couple of the books on the lists, but I’m not familiar with others at all, so if you have any opinions on any of the lists, the book on the lists, or book that you think should be on the lists, leave a comment and let us know!
